Devlin goes ‘Ghosting’

Pic marks producer's helming debut

CANNES — Producer Dean Devlin will make his directorial debut on “Ghosting,” an f/x-driven action-thriller.

Pic will head into production after Devlin wraps “Isobar,” which lenses in September.

“Ghosting” follows a disabled police officer who works with investigators using a technique that allows them to temporarily leave the world of the living and conduct investigations from the other side.

Devlin penned the screenplay, originally written by Jessie Alexander. He’ll also produce, along with Kearie Peak and Marc Roskin, for Electric Entertainment.

“(This is a project) that I’ve had my eye on for a long time to make as my directorial debut,” Devlin said. “Everything I love about movies is in this story.”

Devlin and Nicolas Chartier’s sales banner Voltage Pictures is repping foreign rights.

Devlin’s Electric banner has upcoming credits including “Flyboys” for MGM and “Who Killed the Electric Car” for Sony Classics.
